Goa Education Trust Scholarships’ to the UK open for applications

GOA: The British Council, UK’s International organisation for educational and cultural relations announces Goa Education Trust scholarships to the UK. These scholarships will fund Indians to pursue a Masters in the UK in various disciplines including Journalism, Education, Ancient History and Law.

The Goa Education Trust Scholarship (GET) has been conceptualised by the industrious Dempo and Fomento groups from Goa and is aimed to provide students an efficient medium to pursue the best available opportunities in education, in whichever academic fields they choose.

Gill Caldicott, Acting Country Director, British Council India said, ” Goa Education Trust scholarship is an initiative through which we support the Indian students to enhance their skills by studying in the best UK universities. The scholarship has already benefitted a lot of students and we are positive towards receiving a higher number of applicants this year as well.”

GET Scholar Uma Damle, who is presently pursuing a Masters in Fashion Photography at University of Arts, said ” The interview was a challenging and mentally stimulating exercise. The questions asked were intelligent, insightful and made one think on their feet. The realisation that I will finally fulfil my dream of studying in University of Arts London is yet to sink in. I cannot express my gratitude towards GET and British Council for funding an unconventional course like mine.”
